An Overview of Pet Hotel Accommodations and Services

A pet hotel offers a friendly, enjoyable alternative to a traditional kennel or cattery, which place the animals in cages and tend to be impersonal and scary for a pet. Pet hotels pamper and entertain your pet with comfortable beds and plenty of walks.

Benefits to a Pet Hotel

It's hard to find pet friendly hotels (for people), but check the city where you are visiting for a pet hotel. PetSmart's PetsHotel® provides overnight stays and day care for pets of all ages. Animals stay in spacious rooms containing lambskin bedding and televisions with animal videos. Attendants take pets for daily walks and spend quality time playing with them and providing nutritious meals and snacks.

The Barkley is another popular pet hotel. This elaborate hotel and day spa offers luxurious rooms for your pet and adds a salon and spa where your pet is pampered. Dogs receive three walks or more per day, two daily meals, climate controlled rooms, daily maid service and more. Cats stay in their own condo with a litter box, air purification, catnip, playtime and more. Best of all, pet owners can view their animals online whenever they want.
